RockmusicRaider Review - Halestorm - Vicious - Album Cover

Halestorm rulez, they said. The band will continue to deliver, they said. And truly, after former premium releases like The Strange Case of… or the more lackluster Into the Wild Life, expectations for anything coming from Lzzy Hale‘s corner were high. 

Sky high.

The awfully long waiting time for new material to come out added to the angst that Halestorm could be headed towards loony road. Not to forget the somewhat rosy direction Halestorm took in their last record. Kind of exposing Lzzy‘s soft side at every turn of the road. Would we get some politically correct, [...] Click to raid more!

RockmusicRaider Review - Halestorm - Into The Wild - Album Cover

This one took me some time to digest, I admit. Sniveling rage gone and replaced by what? Lzzy Hale growing old, going pop and full blues rock on me? For sure this isn’t what we expected from Halestorm for their newest, lengthily announced 2015 magic potion Into the Wild Life.

Methinks that Halestorm tries to jump on to the mainstream train this time. Which would of course be much more alluring money-wise than anything else that the band could generate screaming about outside, off the beaten track. But then, they do this mainstream thing Halestorm style, which is kind of reassuring. [...] Click to raid more!

I had never heard of Lzzy Hale before and for sure nothing of a US band called Halestorm. Wassatt? A spelling mistake? Well, folks, joking stopped right away when I started to listen to their first track on their album named after themselves. Where did this rock-hard bundle of energy come from, roaring out of my headphones with this take-no-prisoners attitude? Holy. Shit.

Since then, they have my undivided attention and I have Lzzy Hale and her band in highest esteem. Halestorm produce high-quality rock of a kind that you will have trouble finding across the music industry these [...] Click to raid more!

Hahaa!! Right up my alley! Halestorm at its best, delivering some solid Heavy Rock and then some with The Strange Case of…!

Taking off at full speed, Lzzy Hale is doing her very best with aggressive vocals of love and pain. Feelings about rock shows and … soft stuff. Yes! You heard right! Soft stuff, not only tough like on the previous record. On their previous one, you were wondering who is the toughest guy on the set. No woman there, right? Lzzy – are you getting old or what?

Of course, there is not much new in this [...] Click to raid more!
